So you have pretty much run out of excuses – it is time to organize the garage. Has it become the catch-all for everything that you don’t know what to do with? If your car no longer fits inside, it is time to get your garage cleaned out.
According to the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), fifty percent of American homeowners surveyed admitted that their garage is disorganized and many even said it was “messiest room” in their house. It doesn’t have to be that way. If you incorporate some smart storage ideas, you can have a place for storage and a place for your car too.
The first thing to do is to take a quick inventory of what is actually in your garage. Decide what to keep and what to get rid of. You probably have items that are broken or just never used any more taking up space. Donate what you don’t want that is still usable or consider having a yard sale. This is a great way to earn extra cash while clearing out the clutter.
For those items you choose to keep, group them into categories – examples include sports equipment, gardening tools, car care products, painting supplies, and household tools to name a few. Remember that as you organize your garage, keep your frequently used items in a convenient place. This will give you easy access to these items when you need them and it will make them easy to put away when you are finished.
